Pomona Courthouse Traffic Court

The traffic clerk at the Pomona courthouse is notoriously busy.   Lines can be upwards of 2 hours most days of the week.   The traffic clerk’s office in Pomona includes both the court clerks as well as the dreaded collection agency of GC Services for those unfortunate enough to have a failure to appear or FTA which may be holding or suspending your California Drivers License or even an out of state license.    For many people, the visit to the courthouse starts with waiting over an hour in line, only to be told when your reach the clerk that you actually need to go the window outside to deal with GC Services.   The clerk for the criminal and limited civil divisions is located upstairs on the second floor and features equally slow and understaffed customer service.  Most days the crimiinal and civil clerk’s office will have a good line going and only one employee at each window.

Pomona Courthouse Criminal Court

The large building behind the muni court in Pomona handles felony cases, juvenile cases, and cases of unlimited civil jurisdiction.   There are exceptions but in general the caseload between the two courthouses in Pomona gets divided up as small problems go into the small building and big problems go into the big building.  If you are headed to the Pomona Courthouse, parking is available South of the courthouses in a paid lot.  Free parking is located in the surrounding area if you are willing to make a short walk.
